Chaos Group Releases V-Ray 5 for Rhino


Chaos Group has released V-Ray 5 for Rhino, a powerful new update to bring realtime rendering into Rhino and Grasshopper. 

V-Ray for Grasshopper is included with V-Ray for Rhino and includes a collection of nodes to support V-Ray geometry, lighting, materials, rendering, and animation. Use Grasshopper's node system to use V-Ray's functions.

Some of the key features are:
  • Live Link component for V-Ray Vision. Visualize your Grasshopper designs in realtime. Build models, apply materials, and set up lights and cameras with immediate feedback.
  • Light Gen. Lighting options are generated automatically and displayed as a series of thumbnails, making it easier to find the best look and mood for a scene. 
  • Redesigned V-Ray Frame Buffer (VFB). Now includes some of V-Ray 5’s most user-friendly features, making it easy to apply finishing touches to any rendering. Composite render layers, make color corrections, and instantly adjust the lighting.
  • Light Mix. Interactively change the color and brightness of any light without rendering again. You can add image adjustments like exposure control, color balance, and color corrections. 
V-Ray 5 for Rhino is compatible with Rhino 6-7. For more features and pricing, visit the V-Ray 5 for Rhino product page.

The Architecture Machine Exhibition


The Architecture Machine
October 14, 2020 - January 10, 2021
The Role of Computers in Architecture

For the first time in German-speaking countries, the Architekturmuseum der TUM presents a large-scale exhibition on the computer's influence on architecture. Covering from the 1950s to the present, the show recounts this fascinating history in four chapters which sum up key developments of the so-called digital revolution: The computer as a drawing machine, the computer as a design tool, the computer as a medium for storytelling, and the computer as an interactive platform. The fundamental question that guided the two-year research project is simple: Has the computer changed architecture, and if so, how?

Spatial System by Estrtucturas Arqué


The Spatial Systems app is a web application for the parametric design of spatial structures that allows you to generate different typologies and download them in the available formats (.ifc2x3, .dxf, .dwg, .3dm, .stl).

The app, now available in food4rhino as a user service, was created by Estructuras Arqué, a Spanish construction company. It came from the idea of applying the parametric architecture concept to the design and manufacturing of metal roofs and modular construction.

It brings together the best of cloud applications and IFC interoperability by providing easy access to structural design. With it, architects can quickly test various options and configure desired products according to the project requirements.

The parametric logic of this tool was built in Grasshopper and then uploaded to ShapeDiver for publishing online. The model was then embedded in the final web application with custom UI. The IFC export is powered by the GeometryGym plugin for Grasshopper.
